Members from Avis Budget vote yes to a new contract

Monday, May 30, 2022: UFCW Local 832 members from Avis Budget Group ratified a new four-year contract with some much-needed monetary increases. 

“This group has had a tough go with COVID and their bargaining committee worked hard to get them some meaningful wins in this contract,” says Joe Carreiro, union negotiator. 

The new four-year deal includes:

  • National Day for Truth and Reconciliation added to General Holidays as well as the ability to exchange four of the General Holidays for other calendar days.
  • Improved Shift Bid language that involves the Union in developing shift schedules.
  • Retroactive pay back to May 1 and an immediate wage increase of just over $1.50, plus fifty cent increases in each subsequent year. Overcalled employees receive a 3% increase immediately, 2.8% in both year two and three, and 3% in year four.
  • Contract language cleanup throughout.
